Why you should introduce a Pergola to your outdoor living space

If you’re looking to enhance your outdoor living space, a pergola might be the perfect addition to your home. A pergola is a simple outdoor structure that can provide shade, privacy, and style to your backyard or patio. Here are some reasons why you should consider a pergola for your home:

  1. Provides shade and shelter: One of the primary reasons to consider a pergola is for the shade it provides. A pergola can shield you from the sun’s harsh rays, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space comfortably. It can also provide shelter from light rain, enabling you to stay outside even during inclement weather.
  1. Adds style and beauty: A pergola is a beautiful and stylish addition to any outdoor space. It can add an elegant touch to your backyard, making it more inviting and appealing. With various designs and materials to choose from, you can customise your pergola to match the style of your home and personal taste. Pergolas are available in different sizes to best suit your outdoor living space, or even wall-mounted as a direct extension of your home.
  1. Creates an outdoor living room: A pergola can help create an outdoor living room, providing a comfortable and stylish space for entertaining guests or relaxing with family. With the addition of a Dining Set, Bar Set or Sofa Set you can transform your pergola into a cosy and inviting space for all seasons.
  1. Increases privacy: If you have neighbours nearby or live on a busy street, a pergola can provide privacy and seclusion to your outdoor space. With the addition of All Weather Blinds or Louvres you can help enhance your pergola even further and create a peaceful retreat where you can relax and unwind.

A pergola can enhance your outdoor living space in numerous ways, providing shade, shelter, style, and privacy. It’s a beautiful and practical addition to any home, increasing its value and appeal. Whether you’re looking to entertain guests, relax with family, or simply enjoy the outdoors, a pergola can help you create the perfect space to do so.

Transform your outdoor living space into a Holiday from Home

The idea of having a holiday at home might sound strange at first, but with the right outdoor furniture, it can become a reality. Your outdoor space can be transformed into a peaceful, relaxing and refreshing oasis that is perfect for entertaining, spending time with family or simply relaxing in your own company. Let’s explore how Elements Home and Garden outdoor furniture can help you achieve that holiday feeling.

Create a Comfortable Lounge Area

One of the key components of a holiday is relaxation, and what better way to relax than by lounging on comfortable outdoor furniture? By investing in quality lounge chairs, outdoor sofas and coffee tables, you can create a space that is both comfortable and inviting. Consider using weather-resistant materials as seen on Element’s outdoor fabric corner sets and aluminium sofa sets to ensure that your outdoor furniture can withstand the elements.

Make it Stylish

The right outdoor furniture can add style and sophistication to your home’s exterior. Be sure to choose furniture that complements your home’s existing decor or opt for a different style to create a distinct look. You can add a pop of colour to your outdoor space by incorporating bright, bold cushions or throws.

Dining Al Fresco

Eating outdoors is a wonderful way to enjoy the weather and make the most of your outdoor space. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or enjoying a casual family meal, a stylish outdoor dining set can create a holiday-like atmosphere. Add a cantilever or parasol to provide shade for some relief from the sun.

Relax with a Book

If you enjoy reading, then you know that there’s nothing quite like reading a book outside in the fresh air. A comfortable outdoor lounge chair or daybed, paired with a side table for your book and a refreshing drink, can create the perfect spot for reading and relaxing.

Flicker from a Fire Pit

A fire pit is a great addition to any outdoor space, providing warmth and ambience for cosy evenings spent outside. You can also use it for cooking or simply enjoying the flicker of light. Surround your fire pit with comfortable chairs or benches for a cosy and inviting atmosphere with one of Elements Home and Garden’s Fire pit sets.

Outdoor furniture can truly transform your home into a holiday retreat. By investing in comfortable and stylish furniture, you can create a space that is both inviting and relaxing. Whether you’re lounging in the sun or enjoying a meal with friends, your outdoor space can be transformed into a paradise that you’ll never want to leave.

How to maintain your garden furniture

Garden furniture is one of those things that you do not want to be replacing every year. However, if not maintained properly, garden furniture might not last as long as you’d like it to. Maybe you have recently purchased a beautiful sofa corner set and want to ensure it will look its best for many years to come. Either way, we have put together some easy ways to maintain and refresh your outdoor furniture.

Perhaps you have noticed that the colder months were not the nicest for your old garden furniture and would use an uplift. If it seems that is way beyond an uplift, maybe it truly is time for an upgrade. At Elements Home & Garden, we supply a large collection of furniture for gardens, patios and other outdoor spaces, including garden corner sofas, sunloungers and garden fire pits. If you are looking for cheaper alternatives, why not browse our garden furniture sale? All outdoor furniture under this collection is 50% OFF!

Consider a shading solution.

A pergola, gazebo or simply an awning might be the easiest solution to keep your garden furniture away from weather damage. Not only this but one of these shading solutions will be handy for you too! For instance, the Summit Pergola 3m x 3.6m will cover your whole seating area, giving you the perfect space to enjoy no matter the weather. If you are looking for something smaller, the Titan 3.5×3.5m Heavy Duty Square Cantilever with Freestanding Base is also a great choice!

Store textiles after use.

After a lovely sunny summer day out in the garden, start the habit of storing away any textiles – cushions, blankets, you name it. The Oxford Storage Box or the Ascot Cushions Storage Box are both great options to keep all of your textiles keep looking fresh!

Furniture covers are a must-have.

As simple as furniture covers seem, they do a big job in keeping your garden furniture looking its best. Not only do outdoor furniture covers protect your garden furniture from damaging UV rays and precipitation but these covers will also protect your furniture against bird droppings, tree sap and pollution.

Wipe it down.

You will be able to clean most types of outdoor furniture with damp cloth and a mixture of warm water and mild soap.

The professionals do it best

While some of us may believe that we can decorate our homes just as good as the professionals can – it’s time to be honest with ourselves. It is literally their job. While we may be capable of putting up a few lights, we won’t be doing it nearly as quickly or efficiently as the experts. It may be a lot of hassle for us, we might have to try four times before we get it right – but they know exactly how to get it right in half the time. There’s no shame in getting assistance if it will save time and energy.
